the financial wrong doing x. news on boss collars gold walks from prison on bail is set at nine million dollars . this is business on the w. i'm going to the office in berlin wellcome china will change a key policy to ease restrictions on foreign companies investing in the country most importantly china will no longer force foreign companies to give up technology secrets in exchange for market access according to a top economic official complaints that beijing demands the disclosure of intellectual property from foreign investors have been at the heart of the u.s. china trade dispute the provisions designed to clarify investment rules are expected to be rubber stamped at the annual meeting of the country's national legislative. well made in china twenty twenty five that's the banner under which the world's second largest economy is plugging its plan to transform itself from the world's factory floor to a high tech manufacturing hot and it's
a plan investors abroad are keeping a keen eye on a staggering nine hundred fifty thousand foreign companies already operate in china that invested a total of some two point one trillion u.s. dollars so far that's the equivalent of a sixth of chinese total economic output last year and that's despite china up until now forced foreign companies to hand over technology secrets now that's apparently going to stop details are still sketchy but here's the chairman of the national development and reform commission. you know when it's on we will protect and boost the system of investment for foreign companies we will ensure the legal protection of intellectual property belonging to foreign investors you know administrative measures will be taken for forced technology transfer this should provide a more powerful and comprehensive legal guarantee that once legislation is passed will fully comply. so is change really on the way with me to discuss this
is a must count he's an economic analyst from the mcconnell institute of china studies here but then welcome back is this the big breakthrough we've been waiting for i think we're going to have to wait and see about for implementation china has quite generous laws in other respects but they're not always implemented or not always followed and when have to wait for that the law does look good in certain senses what we've seen so far is a is a draft which will be discussed for home friday in an attempt potentially put into law monday and the law has several clauses which some quite promising and it's it's what it primarily does is that it's removed a lot of administrative costs of existed in the past so foreign investment. approval who would be easier for from now on it also grounds national treatment to companies because i mean the foreign companies are to be treated the ass chinese companies as long as they're not investing in certain different sectors as you
mentioned and in the in the opening to this segment. technology transfer is not going to be such a big thing anymore and additionally diskin to be more ip protection and so on is it very clear cuts i mean is it will there be exceptions will there be are they several clauses to it can they still come to to western companies and say look you've got to tell us this because maybe you're in the defense that that doesn't seem to be the case so national security if it's meant. several times in the law so for example if a if a company doesn't it hit the chinese national security they can be exceptions can be made additionally there will be a negative list that will be published by the state's council at some later point do you think it is this going to be watered down the news that it's a drop off is this going to be watered down during this people's congress or is it just going to be way through i'd honestly can't tell you where we'll have to wait
and see if ok. will this really make foreign investment easy and will it bring money into the country looks like it will make foreign investment easier as to whether or not it will bring foreign investment into the country i think well it makes it easier but foreign investment depends on all kinds of factors such as how quickly the economy is growing. of capital looks it's not a conscious and so instead there are many factors at play but as far as legal restrictions go it's becomes a little bit these you know. why does this where does this change of heart come from why does it come now i think it's hard to think that it's not related to the american trade negotiations especially since things like forced to acknowledge a transfer are explicitly mentioned in the documents. about this exactly so it's seems related to that but apart from that china has been talking about to open in more to foreign investment for long times there's also economic reasons for this foreign companies have been complaining about not getting equal treatment so and
the chinese economy has also been slowing down a little bit recently so bringing in more fat foreign capital can definitely help the top. of the market institute for china's starr thank you thank you very much for joining me this do you feel. for disgraced former miss on boss call's go on it's third time lucky he's finally been released from japanese present on an almost nine minute million dollar bail he's now awaiting trial on a variety of serious charges amounts to underreporting his salary for years and passing on personal losses to innocent if convicted he could be facing a sentence of up to fifteen years in prison. carlos grown seen here where in the light blue cap is out of jail after a three month stint behind bars now the ousted nissan chairman can discuss his defense strategy with his lawyers in a private accommodation his new home is monitored by cameras and his internet access is limited and was granted bail thanks to his new legal team which he hired
mid february. i don't think the facts have changed i think that it's possible that grown through voyeurs have made a stronger case. but it's quite clear that the only basis on which he could have been. detained indefinitely would be that he was likely to escape. is accused of underreporting millions in tax revenues and engaging in gross business misconduct goannas responsible for a merger between french car manufacturer know and japan's nissan motors now the go on scandal has thrown the relationship between the two companies into disarray. malaysia is this year's showcase country at the i.t.v. tourism trend brilliant berlin that's the well's biggest trade show off the tourism sector up the decision proves controversial was making headlines recently for

way we look at the feedback from introducing our own you could be in for a surprise you know i think probably markets would be accepting electrification a little bit better and sooner than we expect french persia's also to make inroads into electric vehicles for the first time it's pretty two zero eight will be marketed in a petrol and an electric version persia's banking on electrifying small models. but surely it sits around it's going even further it's am i one won't only be electric but also autonomous what is a concept and obviously what we are testing now is to people like it does it make sense and then we will we will then if if people say ok that actually makes sense we then look at the feasibility in the business plan and that obviously if we were to bring a car like that into the market of course we would want to make money to start to is ready for mass production of all those new electric model a clear challenge to us electric car maker tesla's mid-sized city. danz it was
